OpEdNews - Article: Why Barack Obama is the More Effective Evil
 If you are going to fight for anything, you've got to fight for the  right  to fight. That means fighting for the rule of law. So, if you don't plan to go underground or into exile anytime soon, you must fight the president who claims the right to imprison or kill  any  person, of  any  nationality,  any  place on Earth, for reasons known only to him. The man who excelled George Bush by shepherding preventive detention through Congress -- Barack Obama, the More Effective Evil.

 There's a growing and alarming body of research indicating that GMO foods are unsafe, and absolutely no research whatsoever proving that they are safe. And yet the USDA and FDA continue to approve, and just this past month even agreed to speed up approval of these crops that scientists and physicians increasingly link to poor health

OpEdNews - Article: Up, Up and Away: How Money Power Works Down Under by John Pilger

OpEdNews - Article: Up, Up and Away: How Money Power Works Down Under: This unprecedented action was the climax of a plan to crush the unions, Murdoch-style, and to take much of the company "off-shore" into Asia. A subsidiary airline based in Asia would employ fewer staff and pay them less, including pilots and engineers, in conditions once unknown to the world's safest airline. For a decade, the company has been building wholly or partly owned domestic and regional airlines on this cut-price basis while closing Qantas routes.

The Bradley Manning Prosecution Infected by Government Misconduct, Dismissal is the Only Option

The Bradley Manning Prosecution Infected by Government Misconduct, Dismissal is the Only Option: "Last week I spent two days in court for a pretrial motions hearing in the court martial of Bradley Manning, the private accused of leaking documents to WikiLeaks that showed widespread unethical and illegal behavior by the Department of Defense and State Department.  Manning has suffered the fate the Queen put on Alice when she was in Wonderland, “Sentence first -- verdict afterwards.” By the time his court martial is actually held he will have been incarcerated for more than two years, one of those years was spent in solitary confinement. But, that is only one of many obvious injustices Manning is being subjected to."

'A Test You Need to Fail': A Teacher's Open Letter to Her 8th Grade Students | Common Dreams: "I spent last night perusing the 150-plus pages of grading materials provided by the state in anticipation of reading and evaluating your English Language Arts Exams this morning.

New Chapter's new owner (P&G) steeped in animal testing and led by directors with ties to weapons contractors, Big Pharma, Monsanto, Chevron and more: (NaturalNews) NaturalNews has never really taken much of an interest in Procter & Gamble -- until now. Having acquired New Chapter, a once-promising supplier of high-end herbal supplements such as Zyflamend, P&G now demands some honest scrutiny. Who are these people that New Chapter has decided to cozy up to? What are their business interests, and what are their ethics?

JOSEPH KONY, AMERICA'S PRETEXT TO INVADE AFRICA: US Marines Dispatched to Five African Countries

JOSEPH KONY, AMERICA'S PRETEXT TO INVADE AFRICA: US Marines Dispatched to Five African Countries: The hidden agenda in Uganda, Central Africa and the Horn of Africa is the conquest of oil and strategic mineral resources. Going after Joseph Kony and protecting Ugandan children is a cynical smokescreen, a pretext for a "humanitarian intervention" in a region where US sponsored "civil wars" (Sudan, Rwanda, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Somalia, Ethiopia) have in the course of the last 20 years resulted in more than eight million deaths:

POLICE STATE USA: New Obama Executive Order Seizes U.S. Infrastructure and Citizens for Military Preparedness

POLICE STATE USA: New Obama Executive Order Seizes U.S. Infrastructure and Citizens for Military Preparedness: In a stunning move, on March 16, 2012, Barack Obama signed an Executive Order stating that the President and his specifically designated Secretaries now have the authority to commandeer all domestic U.S. resources including food and water. The EO also states that the President and his Secretaries have the authority to seize all transportation, energy, and infrastructure inside the United States as well as forcibly induct/draft American citizens into the military. The EO also contains a vague reference in regards to harnessing American citizens to fulfill “labor requirements” for the purposes of national defense.

 Fred Reed:    More Fun Atrocities     : Information Clearing House

 Fred Reed:    More Fun Atrocities     : Information Clearing House: The military's response to a discovered atrocity is to lie about it if possible. This is not from shame. In Afghanistan, the Pentagon knows that the Taliban cannot defeat American forces, but public opinion in the US can. If lying doesn't work, spin, spin, spin. In the latest atrocity by US forces, in which a GI killed sixteen Afghan civilians for fun, or maybe from boredom, the Pentagon is saying that he had suffered a head injury. Oh. (The magazine The Nation quotes Afghans as saying that there were several Gis, drunk and laughing. I guess they all had head injuriies.)
